What is the GDPR?
Effective May 25th 2018, the GDPR tightens the rules for businesses on how they collect, store and process EU citizens’ personal data. The new regulations impact organisations worldwide that collect and process personal data of EU citizens. Some of the key changes likely to impact your customer feedback programs are listed below.
Empauwer, GDPR and Privacy Shield
Europe is currently leading the way in terms of regulating the protection of personal data of individuals. The new EU GDPR, which replaces the 1995 EU “Data Protection Directive” (and the laws of the various EU member states implementing the 1995 Directive), has been the focal point of discussion and compliance efforts for many companies around the world, including Empauwer.
Empauwer is committed to respecting the privacy rights of all of its customers and their users and to taking reasonable and appropriate measures to protect the privacy and security of their personal information, including by implementing measures designed to comply with specific, applicable provisions of the GDPR.
More generally, Empauwer has updated its technology, service offerings, terms and conditions of service and privacy notice to reflect our ongoing commitment to data privacy and security in compliance with our agreements with our customers and with applicable law.
